How the Other Half Swings

Read "How the Other Half Swings" reviewed by Jeff Fitzgerald, Genius


If there has been a frequent criticism of the Genius Guide, besides the fact that it's hard to tell what the hell I'm going on about most of the time, it would be that I have largely ignored the contributions of women to Our Music. One would think, from the body of my work to this ...

It is easy this year, only vocal music...twelve months, twelve releases. Lyn Stanley Potions: From the '50s We Baby Boomers are a persnickety bunch. We revel in our nostalgia while keeping a jaundiced eye on current trends and how derivative they are compared with those we experienced when ...

Girl Talk: Saxophonists Nicole Glover and Kirsten Edkins

Read "Girl Talk:  Saxophonists Nicole Glover and Kirsten Edkins" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Billabong Island Sound: Spring Baby

Read "Spring Baby" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


There exists music that is perfect for ambient listening (read that: “while in an altered state"). My favorite for many years has been UB40's debut Signing Off (Graduate Records, 1980). The groove on this recording is so highly refined and organically performed that its vibe just sinks into you as a listener, almost by osmosis. I ...

Henry Darragh: Too Much Monday

Read "Too Much Monday" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


My introduction to Houston Jazz came with the receipt of Jacqui Sutton's Billie & Dolly (Toy Blue Typewriter Productions, 2010). A few short months later, I received Henry Darragh's Tell Her for Me (Self Produced, 2011). When I compared the musical personnel for each of these recordings, a light came on in my pea brain alerting ...

Nicola Milan: Forbidden Moments

Read "Forbidden Moments" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey


It should be no wonder that Australia produces musicians whose art reflects a broad blend of the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
